How to programatically get the vpn login id (last one used if not connected)

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 13, 2010    Points: 0   Category :.NET Framework
This might be too specific for this forum or perhaps should be directed to one of the framework forums. Sorry in advance if misplaced. I'm able to use the WMI interfaces to retrieve the username/domain etc...however this remains populated with a valid domain name even though I reboot my machine and unplug the network connection...thus they are cached (last one used). When my user fires up his/her CISCO VPN client and connects...I need to programatically get that username (can be different than windows username) even if they are currently not connected. I've looked at DotRAS as a solution but that seems to add value if they are currently connected to the VPN.Paul Reed

I thought this would be simple... Trying to create a login does an ajax check before submit


I have the standard .net login control that is working.  (Still learning .net after 15yrs of classic)

What I want to do is OnButtonClick run a javascript function (to do an ajax call to the db to check if login is valid or not) and if it returns true, then submit the form normally, else don't submit. The piece that I can't figure out, is how to correctly override the default click even to hit my JS routine and then submit the form properly afterwards.

Thanks ahead of time

How to modify the login control



I'd like to record more information than the default control allows as well as perform actions with the input when the form is submitted but I'm having trouble figuring out how.

So firstly, if I want to record the middlename for example, how would I do that, and by default, where would it go if anywhere?
When the form is submitted, I'd like to take specific input, such as just the middlename for example, and write some linq to sql code to specify when and how it's stored.
In what event would I put this code?

Visual Web Developer 2010 Express "Copy Web Site" using different login


I created a site and am trying to grant another pesron access to upload changes to it without giving them my super-user login.

I made a login for her but I can't test whether it works or not because no matter how much I "disconnect" in the Copy Web Site page of VWD 2010, reconnecting to the same site always logs in as my superuser account without prompting me for a login again.

How do I test is the account it set up correctly before having her try to upload to it?    I want to force the login to remote site dialog to pop up again to test her account.

Any ideas?

Intermittant error: "A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respon



I'm having a doozy of a problem, and can't find a solution.  I have a WFC Web Service installed to a pair of servers, and accessed through a load balancer.  I am accessing the service from an ASP.NET client app, also via WCF.  The Client is not load balanced.

I'm getting an intermittant error:

(Inner Most Exception) System.Net.Sockets.SocketException:  A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond x.x.x.x:80

Login Adpater


I am having problems getting the adpaters to work.  The Whitepaper references a vsi to install but the link to download does not contain the vsi - just source for the CSSFriendly kit.  The kit is missing the css/import.css file also.

Anyway, I fumbled around and was able to get the menu working but I cannot figure out how to specify the css class for the login control.  With the CSSFriendlyAdparters.browser file in my project, I lost all styles and most of the features of the login control.  The menu uses cssselectorclass but I tried that server tag on the <asp:login> and it did not work.  The original cssclass attribute does not seem to do anything either.

Can someone point to some documentation on how to use these tags and integrate with the CSSFriendly.dll adpaters.

Thank you,

Login page for whole site


Hi all,


I've been searching and trying to get this now for hours, so i though i'd come here.

For my website, there will be an admin site. I want to create users in my website database, i have a logins table with a hashed password column. The problem i have is making sure that every request if not already logged in send the user to the login page.


I have a page Login.aspx which i have created, but if i enter http://website/admin/news.aspx it bypasses the login screen and shows the page!!


Does anyone know how i can do this? i have created Login.aspx myself and verified that the username and password enetered are correct.
